I am quite impressed by this book. It could be the best book on alchemy that I have ever read. You will learn of the true first matter of the philosophers as well as practical works related to it. There is no Mumbo-Jumbo and all is clearly and concisely revealed and explained. Everyone who wants to be an alchemist should read this. Whether you are just starting or already deep in your studies, this book is for you. It will clear the confusion and explain all of creation through practical examples that anyone with a distilling apparatus can perform.

With due respect to most others, and I've studied quite a few, this concise publication manages to cover and explain the theoretical basis of a vast and often-times enigmatic school of endeavor in a straight forward and comprehensible manner; clearly and without pomp.(the reader must, perhaps, forgive the pre-Leeuwenhoek explanation of how a petri dish of moist soil might mold). If you need more than this, you could read Pernety(the Great Art), at many times the price.(But worth it). In fact, Pernety quotes Kirchweger as a source.
Other classics (such as the much respected and dearly beloved Fra Albertus(the Alchemists Handbook), or the distant 'Junius' dabble in grain-boiling apparatus and thus become distracted from the luminous essentials. Paracelsus and Geber are technical and obscure. The massive Von Welling opus(Mago-Cabbalisticum et Theosophicum), while very impressive and quirky, will certainly take years to digest. And, oh yes; the Gothic and dark Evola text (Hermetic Tradition)over-examines the sinister. Finally, the Helmond treatise (Alchemy Unveiled)which is rife with anachronisms for a supposedly older text, as delightful as it is, quickly transmutes into other matters.
That leaves (the sort of pricey) Pernety and the truthful and modest Kirchweger (Golden Chain of Homer)(and possibly the Von Welling)as the most truly edifying texts on Alchemy. More books should be this affordable and sincere.
Check out the other publisher with 308 pages and illustrations. This was me throwing my money away again. I wound up giving it to the library
